The DOHC and SOHC engines both use the same Service and Repair procedure from Isuzu. Make note that the DOHC and SOHC engines both use a single gear for the camshaft but use different alignment marks.

Removal
Preparation: Battery ground cable.
Air cleaner assembly
Radiator upper fan shroud
Remove from radiator.
Cooling fan assembly
Remove four nuts, then the cooling fan assembly.
Power steering pump drive belt
Air conditioning compressor drive belt
Generator drive belt.
Fan pulley assembly.
Crankshaft pulley assembly
Using special tool J-8614-O1, hold crankshaft pulley.
Remove center bolt, then the pulley.
Oil cooler hose
Remove two cooler hose bracket fixing bolts on the timing cover.
Timing belt cover.
Pusher.
CAUTION: The Pusher prevents air from entering the oil chamber. Its rod must always be facing upward.

Timing belt
To prevent the timing belt from getting out of position, put the alignment mark on the cam pulley, the crankshaft pulley and the timing belt before removing the timing belt.

CAUTIONS:
Do not bend or twist the belt, otherwise its core could be damaged. The belt should not be bent at a radius less than 3Omm.
Do not allow oil or other chemical substances to come in contact with the belt. They will shorten the belt life.
Do not attempt to pry or stretch the belt with a screwdriver or any other tool during installation.
Store timing belt in a cool and dark place. Never expose the belt to direct sunlight or heat.

NOTE: For correct belt installation, the letters the belt must be able to be read as viewed from the front of the vehicle.

It is recommended for easy installation that the belt be secured with double clips after it is installed to each pulley.

Align the alignment mark (white line) on the timing belt with the alignment mark on the RH bank camshaft timing pulley (on the left side as viewed from the front of the vehicle). Secure the belt with a double clip.
Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise to remove the belt slack between the crankshaft timing pulley and the RH bank camshaft timing pulley.
Install the belt on the water pump pulley.
Install the belt on the idle pulley.
Align the alignment mark (white line) on the timing belt with the alignment mark on the LH bank camshaft timing pulley. (If the belt is difficult to install, turn the camshaft pulley slightly counterclockwise.)
Turn the crankshaft pulley clockwise to give some slack between the crankshaft timing pulley and the RH bank camshaft timing pulley.
Install the pusher while pushing the tension pulley to the belt.
Pull out the pin from the pusher.
